Watch a report from ITV Anglia's Rob Setchell:
Residents of a housing estate in Lowestoft have spent the day ripping up floors and throwing out belongings destroyed by floodwater.
The deluge caused floods across Norfolk and Suffolk on Sunday 6 October, but people in Aldwyck Way saw water actually enter their homes.
Brian Johnson said the flooding came dramatically quickly.
He said: "Within 20 minutes of me getting my kids to my brother-in-law's all the water came in.
"I've decorated most of my house and when I saw the water come in I thought - I've spent all this money decorating, my floor's cost me £400 and I've just lost the whole lot.
"We've lost all our sofas - most of our photos have disappeared. I've lost all my shoes, pretty much everything in my kitchen."
Several residents of the street, which is susceptible to flooding because of its proximity to a stream, had to be evacuated by boat as the rain fell.
Representatives from Suffolk County Council (SCC) were at the scene on Monday to help with the clear up. They say a plan to protect Aldwyck Way from any future flooding should be in place by the start of next year.
Matt Hullis, Head of Environment Strategy at SCC, said: "We're in the final stages of designing a solution here which involves a wall and some pumps to take the water into the stream.
"It will make it a lot less likely to happen in the future."
